Winter joy

When winter gives you freezing cold temperatures

And lots of snow,

The best thing is to embrace it

And smile —

  1. Fun! We didn’t have any snow last winter, when Mozzie and Oliver were puppies, but got about 5″ in January, and they loved it, especially Mozzie.

  3. Embracing is often better than resisting in other parts of our lives as well. Great!

  4. Our little Bonnie-Belinda tries to leap through the snow like that, even when it is chest-deep. When she comes in, she needs her tummy dried as well as her feet. She is very patient when I do it, but thinks it is fun to escape from Dick when he tries to towel her off. She runs through three rooms to get to me, as if asking my permission to let him dry her, and I send her back to him, whereupon her feet are already half dry. She thinks it is great fun, full of tricks as she is!

    I have been seeing a lot of snow pictures from the UK – such things must be more or less normal for you these days! The Tasmanian Devils in my pictures are (sadly) all captive animals, so they seem more that happy to laze around in the open, often near the fences. I have never managed to photograph any in the wild.

    Cheers – Stewart M – Melbourne
